Balloon Flower (Platycodon grandifloras blue) Perennial Seeds, Non-GMO, Open Pollinated.  20 seeds per package. 

Balloon flower has unique star-shaped purple-blue blossoms, and it blooms late summer and into the fall and some of their biggest fans are children. They love to watch the balloons form (the buds) and then grow until the right time to pop open and form the lovely star-shaped flower.

This is an old fashioned flower that has been around for a long time. It looks beautiful in gardens and can be used as cut flowers for arrangements.

Sow Balloon Flower seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before last frost, and transplant outside. This flower seed requires sunlight to germinate, so do not cover the flower seed with soil. Just lightly pat them into the soil so good contact is made and water lightly.

You can also sow the flower seed directly outdoors after last frost. Balloon Flower seed is one of the last perennials to come up in the spring.

Balloon Flower plants are very hardy perennials that can withstand periods of drought, and they are rarely bothered by disease or insect problems making them virtually a maintenance-free perennial.
